North Sails Experts Provide Preparation and Performance Insight At Inaugural Seminar

Twenty five sailors joined North Sails’ Sales Experts Peter Grimm & Bob Meagher for the inaugural Performance Seminar in Miami at Coral Reef Yacht Club. Focused on big-picture strategies for the various races of the South Ocean Racing Conference (SORC), the seminar featured discussions around examining race charts, sail options, and safety precautions.

“The SORC offers challenging and enjoyable racing for sailors of all types,” said Bob Meagher. “Casual day-sailers can race alongside some of the most amazing grand-prix boats on the water, and then have fun in places like Key West, Nassau, and Eleuthera.”

In addition to the seminars, North Sails in Ft Lauderdale is offering registrants in any of the races a free in-loft sail inspection to identify any problems with existing sails, or opportunities to improve them. Chafe points or sun damage that could become tears can jeopardize the time and money spent planning for a race. Professional sail inspection by our Certified Service experts can reduce this risk and ensure you leave the dock with the most reliable sails possible. Recuts are also available for older sails.

Registration is now open for all SORC events, and the early entry deadline for the Nassau Cup Ocean Race is approaching.

The next North Sails Performance Seminar is scheduled for October 23 at the Palm Beach Sailing Club. Register below and secure your space.
